Trail Angels

These are volunteers who can help arrange your trip, locate outfitters and gear, provide fact-finding and directions, haul your boat and gear, help you over portages and innumerable other services, and save you from miserable experiences. Depending on the situation, they may ask to be reimbursed for costs such as gas and other expenses incurred helping you. They are not on call, but are arranged by prior agreement as volunteer service providers for the Alabama Scenic River Trail.
